GASTAT Obtains the European Institutional Excellence Certificate EFQM

The General Authority for Statistics (GASTAT) obtained the Institutional Excellence Certificate (Qualified by EFQM) from the European Foundation for Quality Management. GASTAT managed to obtain this certificate after achieving compliance with the EFQM model according to the RADAR matrix. This was through the application of institutional excellence standards set by the Foundation, which align with the directions of Saudi Vision 2030.
The certificate was obtained due to commitment to the standards of the European Foundation for Quality Management and the application of its adopted model, which was established in 1989 and is considered the most widely spread around the world. Meeting the model's requirements is one of the directions pursued by several local and international entities in the field of institutional excellence. It enables organizations to achieve high-quality business results within a governance framework that contributes to business sustainability, improves work environments and increases productivity.
This achievement highlights GASTAT's efforts exerted to develop its statistical system by ensuring sustainable quality operations, creating sustainable value for the statistical product, assessing the comprehensive experience, focusing on digital transformation, and utilizing modern technologies and international practices to ensure high efficiency in performance and access to high-quality statistics. The EFQM excellence model, launched by the European Foundation, is a comprehensive framework for corporate management systems, created to assist organizations in their approach towards establishing institutional work, raising the level of performance, meeting the needs of beneficiaries in terms of services, and ensuring sustainability.
In this context, Dr. Fahad bin Abdullah Al-Dossari, President of the General Authority for Statistics, expressed his appreciation for the efforts made to align with the European model of institutional excellence by EFQM. He noted that obtaining this certificate is an important contributor to sustainability and development. It also supports GASTAT and its staff in raising the level of performance and developing their operations, especially since it was achieved through an external evaluation by the European Foundation for Quality Management based on a comprehensive and precise set of practical procedures covering all GASTAT's technical and administrative activities.
He added, "Through continuous institutional planning and development, we have achieved excellence in this critical stage that GASTAT is experiencing, as it is going through a comprehensive transformation at various levels, striving to achieve the highest standards of quality. This comes from the efforts and collaboration of GASTAT staff and the hard work they put in to be part of this success."
It is worth mentioning that the European Foundation for Quality Management is an independent, non-profit organization established in October 1989 when the heads of 67 European companies joined the institution's policy document and declared their commitment to achieving the mission and vision of the European Foundation for Quality Management. The Foundation includes a team of experts and academics to develop the EFQM Excellence Model, a comprehensive framework applicable to any organization, regardless of its size or sector. The Foundation aims to increase the competitiveness and efficiency of all organizations sustainably . It provides its methods and models in more than 30 languages and offers services in over 40 countries worldwide.
